ConceptCalorimetry - Specific Heat Capacity

#### Question

The temperature of 170g of water at 50°C is lowered to 5°C by adding a certain amount of ice to it. Find the mass of ice added.

#### Solution

Given data:

M_w = 170 gm,S_w = 1 "cal/gm"^@C = 4200 J / kg^@C

triangle T = 5^@C, L_f = 80 cal/gm = 336000 J/kg

Amount of heat given by water = Amount of heat absorb by ice     .....[Principle of calorimetry]

M_wS_wtriangleT = M_"ice" xx  L_f

(170)(1)(5) = M_"ice" xx (80)

:. M_"ice" = (170xx1xx5)/(80) = 10.625 gm

Is there an error in this question or solution?
